    Interesting article, very true, except for the point about the prequels. I dont really see a huge problem with that. Prequels are prequels, and if a series is so successful then let them milk it for all its worth.

    As for the cover, if the game's combat is cover based then it should take a page out of Spec Ops: the line and make it so cover is destructible with enough firepower against it, as I recall.

    Or Counter Strike where you can just shoot through a wall with your AK-74 and kill them.
    The art of war, then, is governed by five constant
    factors, to be taken into account in one's deliberations,
    when seeking to determine the conditions obtaining in the field.

    These are: (1) The Moral Law; (2) Heaven; (3) Earth;
    (4) The Commander; (5) Method and discipline.

    Move this to the Arena since it is about gaming in general?

    Your call

    I don't know how much traffic the Arena gets, and besides, most of the folks I'm familiar with are in here.....
